Inverkeithing Hillfield Swifts moved above Hutchison Vale Fc in the Division 1 league table after a fine 5-3 win in the first meeting between the pair this season.
A 4-0 half time lead compliments of a double from Healy with McGuire and Francis chipping in with one a piece putting the home team firmly in the driving seat of this fixture. Hutchie replied with goals from Forrest, Williamson and Mitchell in the second half with Healy completing his well deserved hat-trick.
Hillfield got this game underway and the first real chance of the game with only five minutes gone when Hutchie captain Dean Robertson unleashed a 30 yard pile driver which Scott Page had to be alert to tip over the bar for a corner.
Hutchie started the brighter and it was Jonathan Grotlin who created the next chance for the visitors but blasted his shot high over the bar after creating a good shooting opportunity down the right hand side. This was followed by a half chance when after a long ball played forward caused bit of a mix up between the Hillfield keeper James Donaldson and one his defenders and luckily for Hillfield Mitchell just could not take advantage of the error.
Craig Williamson was next to threaten the Hillfield goal after driving down the left hand side he struck a powerful shot from just outside the box with Donaldson tipping over the bar for a corner.
Hillfield's first real flurry forward came when Ryan Barry picked up the ball and drove at the Hutchie goal but a super tackle by Daniel Smith halted him in his tracks just outside the 18 yard box.
Mohammed Asam put himself under pressure for the rest of the game when he picked up a silly yellow card with only nine minutes played.
The team from over the water started to get their game going and created a couple of half chances for Scott Russell and Daryl Healy and this gave the home team belief and Broadie Hamilton certainly showed this when he tried his luck with a 35 yard strike but Page collected with no problem.
William Kerr thought he had a penalty claim when he ventured into the Hillfield box and had his shirt pulled but the referee played advantage and Kerr got his shot away which was spilled by Donaldson which then fortunately came of one of his players and back into his grasp.
This game was being played at a hectic pace and the next opportunity came for the home side when a corner played in by Blair Springhall saw Hamilton's effort go just wide of the right hand post.
Both sides number sixes had good opportunities when firstly Robertson put his chance high over the bar after driving into the box for Hutchie then Aidan McGuire put his shot just wide off the left hand post for Hillfield.
The Hillfield players were growing in confidence and again tested their opponents defense when a corner by Barry was cleared for a corner and a low driven ball from the resulting corner by Hamilton saw the ball hurriedly cleared at the near post.
Hillfield were in ascendancy and were creating the better chances with Healy testing the keeper but he saved well in the center of his goal.
Healy's next chance was to bring the break through in this game when on 25 minutes he latched onto a long ball and drove into the box to see his initial shot come of the keeper but latched onto the loose ball and rounded the despairing keeper and slotted home from a tight angle to give his team a deserved lead.
Ryan Hutchison and Smith both showed their defensive qualities for Hutchie when they stopped efforts from Russell and the hard working Healy.
Hillfield were hungry for more goals before half time and John Francis's 25 yard drive was tipped round the post by Page for a corner. The resulting corner saw a delightful ball played in which was met by McGuire who finished low into the left hand corner and although Page did get a hand to it he could not divert the powerful shot from only six yards out to see the home side double their advantage on 37 minutes.
Two minutes later Hillfield were awarded a free kick just to the right side of the goal and from 22 yards out Francis stepped up and found the top left hand corner which was greeted with mass celebration by the home side players and coaching staff.
With only two minutes to half time things got even better for Hillfield when Hutchie fell further behind after Barry played in a good cross and the ever dangerous Healy met the ball on the half volley and found the right hand corner to go in at half time 4-0 up after scoring three goals in a six minute spell.
